Charity grants

TWO LOCAL charities have received a much needed funding boost in awards settlements from Lloyds TSB Foundation in Scotland.

The CAFE Project (Community Alcohol Free Environment), Brothock Bridge, will receive £4,000 towards the salary of the full-time development worker to work with disadvantaged and at risk young people.

And Tayside Council on Alcohol has been awarded £52,754 to continue to support the staffing and running costs for the Angus Connect project.

Mary Craig OBE, the Foundation’s chief executive, said: “All our awards are driven by the needs of Scotland’s charities and we are always keen to support fragile, local groups that we know make such a difference to people’s lives.

“Over £350,000 of these awards will be used by community-based charities, which rely on hundreds of volunteers to deliver work that helps improve lives for many thousands of people and families across the country.”
